Just saw my PM doc today about my on-going SI pain (had nice steroid shots 2 weeks ago that worked a little). He wants me to try using some "Lidoderm" 5% lidocaine patches, locally, @ the SI joint to tide me over until my next shot in Sept.
How well does it "stay put" during the day? (I teach 2nd grade so I'm active...) Also, anyone have any side-effects?
Thank you so much! Hope everyone is doing OK tonite, or at least doing what you NEED to do to feel better! :)
